Brooklyn Borough Prez Marty Markowitz offered a walk-through of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Squibb Park Bridge progress Wednesday, which will connect Brooklyn Height via Squibb Park to BBP. Spans are set to go beginning December 14. Gothamist—which offers lots of pics—spoke with chief engineer and bridge designer Ted Zoli (of HNTB Corp.), who described the bridge’s lightweight design, which will give it a… uh… “fun little bounce to those walking across it.” Safety guards/handrails stand 42″ with uninterrupted views.

Our Sen. Daniel Squadron notes, “The placement of the bridge just two blocks from Brooklyn Heights Promenade is important psychologically. It says to everyone who comes to the Promenade (that) Brooklyn Bridge Park is yours, too.” More here and here, while the New York Daily News offers its take here.
